Lecture/Panel Discussion

What do we do when we do not know all the facts?  When we present history, we inevitably fill in the gaps, create the voices that spoke, the characters that lived. Historian Jane Kamensky, filmmaker Louis Massiah, and playwright Ain Gordon will lead a panel discussion about how historians and artists handle this predicament. “An Artist Embedded” programs are supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
